What a pleasant surprise. I’ve discovered that one of my musical experiments — the song ‘fracture’ from the ‘decline’ EP — was incorporated by another artist into their work, as background to a reading of “The Repairer of Reputations”, from The King in Yellow, by Robert William Chambers.
- Free download of ‘The King in Yellow’ edited and mixed by Thomas Jude Barclay Morrison (the track starts around the 45:30 minute mark and extends to 52:30).
- More about the Librivox Project (for which the reading was a part – “making all public domain books available as free audio books”).
- More about apophatic (under which I meddle with sound) here; get the ‘decline’ EP here or from amazon.com.
- More about Robert William Chambers (1865-1933):
“… His most famous, and perhaps most meritorious, effort is ‘The King in Yellow’, an 1895 collection of weird short stories, connected by the theme of the fictitious drama The King in Yellow, which drives those who read it insane.”
